Trump: My base is stronger than ever, despite 2020 rumblings

Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States.
BEDMINSTER, N.J. (AP) — President Donald Trump is insisting his support is stronger than ever, despite a report that some Republicans are weighing a 2020 presidential run without him.

In a flurry of early morning tweets Monday, Trump says “the Trump base far bigger & stronger than ever before (despite some phony Fake News polling).” He specifically criticized the “failing @nytimes.” Over the weekend, The New York Times detailed efforts by some Republicans looking ahead to 2020, including Vice President Mike Pence. Pence called the report false.

Trump tweeted “the Fake News Russian collusion story, record Stock Market, border security, military strength, jobs….Supreme Court pick, economic enthusiasm, deregulation & so much more have driven the Trump base even closer together. Will never change!”
